Shake it Santa Baby (Jingle Belles)

I'm honoured to be making a guest appearance on the Jingle Belles challenge blog this fortnight, because I happen to be the person who proposed the current prompt to the lovely Lauren and Stephanie. As you all know, the best ideas often come in the shower, especially if you're singing, and I thought up this prompt when I was humming 'Shake it up baby (Twist and Shout)'. I was immediately thinking shaker cards, (dancing) Santas, Santa babes ... you get the picture.

For this week's card, I decided to focus on Santa. I thought this might be the perfect moment to break into the pack of dimensional plastic Santa stickers I had brought home from a trip to Sydney, Australia some 18 months ago. I wanted to give Santa centre stage, so all I did was cut a few strips of patterned paper from an old Simon Says Stamp card kit, stamp a sentiment and adhere Santa and a small embellishment sticker from the same pack.

And while I had all the supplies out, I decided to make a second card, with a mirrored design, a different Santa, some more embellishments, and a different sentiment. Wish all my cards came together so quickly.

We would be thrilled if you decided to play along with us. Check out the Jingle Belles blog for more inspiration and all the details.
